Your email got my interest. I was looking for a card with those specs
here in Australia, so I went and bought one... (However, thankyou for
I was unable to get RegSpy to work with this card in windows for some
reason, so I was unable to verify those results.
So far I have only spend an hour or so working on a driver, I have worked
out the tuner and demod i2c addresses. However I need to work out how it
selects analog or digital mode and gets the video. So in other words the
easy bits are done but nothing is working yet...
When I get a working driver done, I will let you (and the mailing list)
Anybody can provide any guidance it would be useful.

There was already a page of sorts:
I've added to it. I don't have winodws on that machine, but it apears
someone has done that for me already.
I have some more photos, of even higher res is you want them, but
clutter up everyone's inbox if not need/ wanted.
